Veterinary Dentistry Crown Fitting - 2nd Stage
If you read the post on this blog titled First Impressions! on the 7th of December 2013 you will have read about our patient who had three badly damaged canine teeth. That post described the preparation of these three teeth for crowns and the taking of impressions.
The impressions were sent to a dental lab called Dental Precision in Cornwall where the crowns were made. They are three quarter cast metal crowns. The crowns cover, protect and strengthen the damaged surfaces of the canine teeth, preventing further tooth damage and tooth fracture.
The following pictures show the process of fitting the crowns:

This procedure was performed by Peter Southerden DipEVDC our specialist in veterinary dentistry.
